Short film: The horror of re-discovering a UFO crash from the 1960s

The Landing is a powerful short film directed by Josh Tanner that tells the story of a mysterious UFO crash in the 1960s and the truth that is revealed when it's found again in the present day. It makes us question what is alien and makes us wonder if it's better off just not knowing things sometimes.

Beautiful. Very well done story, quality filming and really convincing actor performances. This is an example of what a short film is supposed to be: as enthralling and captiving as a feature film, while managing to keep it in a TV-series-episode-sized slot. Kudos to the director and the cast.
